In Between

6 Aug

Change is constant and is the only thing we can really count on. Some changes come as expected and we navigate through them easily, but life is unpredictable. We may face a time when something unexpected turns everything upside down and we are stopped in our tracks. It may take time to figure out what’s happened, and what to do next. As we stand still trying to process the new landscape and decide on our next steps, we may feel disoriented and unsure. When the road ahead is something we’ve planned for, the distance in between where we are and where we’re headed is clear and easy to see. But if our future is suddenly in doubt and we can’t yet see the way forward, we may feel momentarily paralyzed and unable to move. The space between where we are and where we want to go may be dark, and unclear. We never know what will come and there is no way to see what lies ahead. Things may go wrong, we may get turned around, the road we’re on may disappear, or a thousand other developments we can’t foresee. No matter what happens, the answers we need will be there for us. We don’t need to panic, or worry we won’t succeed. We can take one step at a time, solve each problem as it arises, and find the way forward. Detours are not the end of the journey. They may delay us and make the road ahead more complex, but they cannot keep us from our goals. Life is full of challenges but we are strong enough and wise enough to manage whatever comes. Nothing can hold us in place indefinitely and we have everything we need to succeed. Surprises will come, trials may beset us, and we might have to stop and regroup before we proceed.  But we are intelligent and wise, and will find the way forward.

The world is huge and we are never restricted to one place forever. We can always venture forth toward something new. Although our routines are familiar and comfortable, when we’re ready for a something different, we can stretch forth and move onto a new location or situation. While we’re in the process of moving from what we know to what we want, there may times of uncertainty and doubt. It’s not easy to let go of the familiar, and reach for something more. But we know what we want, and are perfectly capable of managing anything that’s required to get us there. Every destination is possible, and with determination and faith, we can do anything.

It’s easy to navigate through common territory we know well. We feel at ease when the road is familiar and we’re used to the scenery. We barely need to look where we’re going and can continue forward without much thought. But there are endless opportunities possible, and when we’re ready, we can step beyond the pavement, and chart a new course. Every single dream is possible if we’re willing to do what is needed to make it ours. We have all the courage and wisdom we need to do anything.

Today if you want to move onto something new but aren’t sure you will succeed, trust yourself. You are stronger and wiser than you imagine. Be confident and step toward the dreams you desire. Everything is possible. Believe in yourself and move ahead. You are amazing and capable, and nothing can keep you from success.

Standing By

25 Jun

There are a lot of things we want to accomplish in our lives, and we can reach any goal we desire. If all the parameters of success are up to us, and we have control over each step forward, it may be easy to reach the goal. But life is complicated, and many times our success depends not only on what we do, but on what’s going on around us, and the decisions being made by others. We’re all more connected than we think we are, and things happening far beyond our reach may prevent us from moving ahead. It’s not easy to wait when we want to move, and it’s hard to be patient when we’ve done all we can and must wait for the situation to change. Standing by and watching others move forward while we stand still can be maddening. If we’ve done all we can, and still are unable to progress, we will have to wait. If it looks like the wait will be long, we can set the goal aside and begin working on something else. We never have to stand in place indefinitely. We can set our sights on something new, and when things change and the road opens up ahead, we can start again, and proceed toward the original goal. Every destination is possible but timing is everything. What we want may not be available to us right now but that doesn’t mean it will never be possible. What’s out of reach at the moment will not be out of reach forever. We can be patient and work on other projects and goals until we are able to gain success. Every option is always there for us, and there are many ways to reach success. We can trust ourselves to find the answers we need, and if we must wait, can still proceed forward. All our dreams can be ours, and we can reach every destination we desire.

Sometimes it seems the road ahead is paved and we move forward with few problems, accomplishing the task with little discomfort. Other times, it seems that everything that could possibly hold us in place comes into play and we struggle to make even the tiniest bit of headway. Trouble moving forward doesn’t mean the goal isn’t meant for us or we won’t be able to succeed. Complications give us the chance to learn something new and refine our patience. We can do anything, and already have everything we need to get to any destination. Through wisdom and persistence, we can reach the goal, and have the lives we dream about.

Standing by and waiting for a chance to move forward toward an accomplishment cannot keep us from completing other goals. There are many destinations available to us and if one is locked up now, we can focus on another. Life is long and there is time to achieve the things that are most important to us. We can design our lives any way we like, and with patience and focus, will make our dreams come true.

Today if you’re standing by, waiting for things to change so you can move ahead, look at all the possibilities available. Step toward another goal and actively move forward. Your life belongs to you and every goal is possible. Decide what you want, and take the first step toward it. You are amazing and capable, and nothing is beyond your reach. Success is there for you, and you will reach it.

Missing the Mark

24 Apr

We have all kinds of experiences in our lives. We learn new things as we go along and are often successful in accomplishing our goals. When we get things done well, we feel confident and capable, but sometimes we miss the mark. We never know what will happen next and may get tangled up in an unexpected development that snags our progress and pushes us completely off track. Our judgement may be impaired because we didn’t get all the information, or maybe we had to guess and the road we chose didn’t work out. Lots of things can go wrong and even if we’ve tried to plan effectively, we may stumble or fall down. Life is filled with all kinds of unknowns, and we may struggle or even fail when we’re trying to move ahead. Failure doesn’t mean we’re not capable of succeeding, or that we’re not smart enough to figure out what to do. It just means our first choice didn’t take us where we wanted to go. There are many roads to every destination and if one doesn’t work out, we don’t have to stop and give up. We can look around at the options available and try again. Each step will teach us something new and give us more information to use going forward. Every destination is possible but they won’t all come easily. We may have to try several different roads before we find the one that works. Success is always possible as long as we keep moving ahead. The only sure guarantee of permanent failure is if we stop trying. We can do amazing things and go anywhere we want. We have enough courage and determination to find our way, and can decipher any complication that arises. Nothing is out of reach and we will find success.

It’s so easy to travel on nice, even, paved roads. They are smooth and easy to navigate, and we feel comfortable as we move along. It would be great if every journey was clear and effortless, but life doesn’t work that way. There are countless problems and snags that may arise and we may have to traverse a difficult and rocky path. When the road gets hard and the way ahead is challenging and demanding, we may rethink the goal we’re trying to reach. We can always change our minds and let go of something instead of pushing forward, but if the goal is important to us, we have everything we need to continue ahead. Nothing is powerful enough to hold us in place and we can achieve anything we desire.

When what we want requires a lot of effort, we must decide if we’re willing to do what it will take to get it. Anything worth having is worth working for. The road forward may be long and we make get turned around a time or two. Our destination may be far in the distance but nothing is beyond our reach. If we stumble, we can stand again. If we take a wrong turn, we can change direction. Every dream is possible and if we keep our focus on the way ahead, we will succeed.

Today if you’ve gotten tangled up and lost, and your plans aren’t working, stop and evaluate all the options before you. You are smart enough to achieve anything you desire. Choose your next steps forward and continue moving ahead. You are amazing and capable. Every destination is possible and you will succeed.

Another Setback

18 Feb

When we start out on a new journey and are determined to reach a goal, we may be filled with excitement and sure we’ll succeed. Of course, we can do anything we set our minds to, but that doesn’t mean the goal we’ve chosen will be easy or without complications. There are few times in life when the road ahead is straight, clear and paved and no problems get in our way. Often, things will happen we can’t see at the beginning, obstacles will present we couldn’t predict or imagine, and we may get hung up. Some goals are hard to achieve and no matter how diligently we press forward, we may struggle to move ahead. If we’ve been on the road for a while and there have been many difficulties, we may get tired and start to wonder why we’re continuing on. Another setback may be more than we want to face and we may consider giving up and letting go. We’re always in control of our lives and can change direction whenever we choose and move on to other things. But if the goal is important and we really want to achieve it, we can manage whatever happens that gets in the way. We can keep our focus on the road ahead, even if there are obstacles blocking us. Every goal can be accomplished if we’re willing to do what’s needed to get there. We can decide what we want most, look at all the options before us, and choose the way forward that takes us to the destination we desire. We have all the determination and courage we need to accomplish anything. Every dream is possible and we can make them come true.

Some roads are beautifully paved, with nice straight lines and clear signs to point the way forward. It’s always easy to go the same way as everyone else along a well-traveled road to common places. But if we want something different, the way forward may be more difficult. We may have to travel roads alone that are rocky and rough, with no signs to help us along. We know where we want to go and what we want to accomplish. No matter what’s in the way, there isn’t anything that can keep us from the goals we desire most. We have everything we need to find our way forward and reach any destination.

When we’re trying to move forward and something goes wrong, we can step aside and find the solution. If another problem comes up, we can do it again. It doesn’t matter how many setbacks arise or how many detours we have to take. The goal will always be there for us and if we stay the course and continue forward, we will reach it. Life isn’t always easy, but we have everything we need to reach any destination if we’re willing to continue forward despite what comes. We can do anything. We are powerful and wise, and nothing is out of reach.

Today if you’re facing another setback on the road to a goal, and you’re feeling overwhelmed and tired, decide what you want the most. If the goal is still important, keep going. Find the answers you need to continue, and step forward. You are amazing and powerful, and nothing is beyond your reach. Everything you dream can come true. Be confident. The goal is just ahead and you will reach it.
